Fueling Your Small Business with SBA Lending - Online

Tue 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM
Topic: Financing

The SBA does not lend money directly to small businesses. However, the SBA assists in bringing debt capital (i.e., loans ranging from a few thousand dollars up to $5 million dollars) to small businesses across the country by providing incentives such as a guarantee to their lending partners (e.g., non-profit lenders, small community banks, credit unions, regional lenders, and nationwide banks) to assist new and existing small businesses and industries for a variety of purposes.

In this webinar, you will learn about the various SBA loans including the 7a, 504, Micro, and Community Advantage Loan, and gain an understanding of when a Surety Bond might be needed.

Businesses can use SBA loans to:

• Provide long-term working capital for operational expenses or to purchase inventory;
• Obtain short-term working capital, including seasonal financing and exporting;
• Purchase equipment, machinery, furniture, fixtures, supplies, or materials;
• Buy land or purchase, build, or renovate an existing building;
• Expand an existing business; or
• Refinance debt (under certain conditions).

Currently, the SBA provides an 85 percent guarantee to SBA lenders for 7a loans under $150K and a 75 percent guarantee for 7a loans over $150K.
